Rupert Murdoch concedes 'cover up'

RUPERT Murdoch called his News of the World tabloid an "aberration" overnight, accusing journalists of hiding phone-hacking from himself, his son James and his protegee Rebekah Brooks, and said he wished he had shut it down sooner.

"The News of the World, to be quite honest, was an aberration, and it's my fault," the media mogul said in a second day of testimony in Britain's High Court on Thursday.

"I'm sorry I didn't close it years before."

But he went out of way to defend his Sun tabloid, Britain's top-selling daily.

It has not been touched by the phone-hacking scandal, although several of its journalists have been arrested on suspicion of bribery.
